The Benefits

Apprenticeships can help businesses across all sectors by offering a route to harness fresh new talent.

The Benefits



As Apprenticeships are work-based training programmes, most of the training is ‘on the job’ – at your premises. The rest can be provided by Bath College, another local college or by a specialist training provider, or you could deliver everything yourself.

Apprenticeships enable employers to not only attract new staff but to train up existing staff to tackle their skill shortages, with many employers finding that training through Apprenticeships has a positive impact on staff morale, retention and productivity.

And for an apprentice, they do not view their Apprenticeship as just a job but as a stepping stone to a successful career, so potential employers need not worry about their enthusiasm and commitment.

The apprenticeship team can be contacted by email on employers@bathcollege.ac.uk or by telephone on 01225 328683.
